Corrosion inhibitors are important components in the formulation of water miscible metalworking fluids, there main function is to minimise the corrosive effects of water based fluids on ferrous and no-ferrous metals. In addition, corrosion inhibitor components, as a function of their chemical composition can also provide emulsification, lower foaming tendency, and enhanced lubricity making them useful multifunctional additives. Metalworking fluids applications include soluble oils, semi synthetic and full synthetic fluids as well as cleaners.
Corrosion inhibitors components provided by Lankem can be used to boost corrosion inhibition properties of water based fluids for steel, iron, aluminium, and other metals. These products are based on phosphate esters, alkanolamides, imidazolines and fatty acid esters.
